Tanglewood Sundance Pro TW15/12nse 12-String Dreadnought Acoustic 2010
Tanglewood Sundance 12-String, made in China 2010 approx, natural satin finish. Tanglewood guitars enjoy a huge following in their native UK and Europe,here in Australia they're appreciated by a smaller but loyal group of enthusiasts. The Sundance line was the flagship offering in it's day, so this is built with a lot of care and has a deluxe spec list. It's all solid: solid spruce top, solid mahogany back and sides, one piece mahogany neck and an Indian rosewood board. The wood combo offers a rich, warm and harmonically complex tone with a whole lot of body. The satin finish lets the wood breathe nicely and adds a certain understated charm to the aesthetic. The neck is on the slimmer side for a 12, but the string spacing is still pretty intuitive and it's easy enough to get your chord voicings and riffs sining nicely. These are a bargain brand new; they punch harder than many guitars twice the price, so picking up a used one like this in great shape is surely a terrific way to tickle your twelve twitch.
